Man of La Mancha is one of the world’s most popular and adventurous musicals. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ seventeenth-century masterwork Don Quixote and set during the Spanish Inquisition, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial during the Spanish Inquisition. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself “Don Quixote” and the mad knight goes on a quest to right all wrongs in the world. The rousing, Spanish-inflected score includes the classic numbers “The Impossible Dream,” “I, Don Quixote,” “Dulcinea,” “I Really Like Him” and “Little Bird.”

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?!
Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. The original storybook heroines are none-too-happy with the way they’ve been portrayed in today’s pop culture so they’ve tossed their tiaras and have come to life to set the record straight. Forget the princesses you think you know – these royal renegades are here to comically belt out the truth. Received an “Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical” nomination (Outer Critics Circle Awards) and a “Best New Off-Broadway Musical” nomination (Off Broadway Alliance). RATED NC-17 Contains adult language and content.
Adapted from the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn, written by Sandy Rustin, additional material by Hunter Foster and Eric Price

When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up.

Based on the book The Witches by Roald Dahl
Adapted by David Wood
Directed by Nena Jimenez
Real witches are nothing like the ones who wear pointed hats and fly on broomsticks, they look very much like ordinary people. Why, you might even be sitting next to one right now! They have a diabolical plot to rid the world of children once and for all. But, sometimes the evilest schemes are defeated by the tiniest of foes. Our hero and his wise grandmother (a witch aficionado!) just happen to be on holiday at a seaside hotel and come face to face with the Grand High Witch herself! And did we mention children turned into mice? Spicy pea soup? And you might want to avoid free chocolate! Fun for the entire family and a slightly spooky Halloween treat.
PG - Parental Guidance Suggested for some scary images
